This substantial introduction to Nishida discusses the significance of Nishida as a thinker and the key components of his philosophy as a whole, and contextualizes the two essays of this volume within the unfolding of his oeuvre. The essay examines the various influences on Nishida’s thought, including neo-Kantianism, Hegel, and Husserl, as well as Buddhism, that led to his philosophy of place (basho) and to the prelogical origin of logic in his attempts to recapture the nondualistic implacement of our concrete lived experience. In explicating the complexity of Nishida’s theory the introduction underscores its unique position within contemporary world philosophy as more than simply Japanese or Western, or just Buddhist or Kantian or Hegelian.

Keywords:   Neo-Kantianism, Hegel, Husserl, Buddhism, place, basho, logic
